The Ultimate Kick in the Teeth… Purchasing a Boiler

Ahh our ancient boiler

It’s 5 years older than us.

And is as efficient as a candlestick for a light.

But the cost of boilers is outrageous, so we weren’t going down without a fight.

First we sacrificed all of the floor boards and other wooden pieces we’ve pulled up during the renovation of the bathroom and living room house and kept warm by the fire.

Then we bought a new duvet and pillows to keep warm at night

I think the next step would be to buy a flight to Mumbai to keep warm, but Dobble has warned that would cost more than a boiler. It seems we are at last trumped. The only way to keep warm this winter will be to buy a boiler.

My sorrow is immense. I realise it’s best not to dwell so……

Boilers are to the modern man the ultimate kick in the teeth, followed close behind the cost of using them.
